Give an instance of one of your most interesting queries.
When working in the Reference Library at Newport Central Library I was involved with queries relating to family history. I received a query from someone in Australia, I found the answer to the query in old newspapers, sent the details off to the person and in return received a book which had been written by her husband entitled ” Worms for your garden” !
